Youth Tour Application
Each year A&N Electric Cooperative holds an essay contest to determine the cooperative’s Washington Youth Tour participants.
The contest is open to all high school and home school juniors living in the cooperative’s service area.
A student from each area high school is eligible to attend the Youth Tour during a five-day trip to Washington, D.C.
Every June, as many as 1,800 high school students from across the country spend a week in the nation's capital as part of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. The students are sponsored by electric cooperatives – cooperatives that are committed to educating America's rural youth about America and the role electric cooperatives play in developing strong rural communities.
Participating in the Youth Tour is a great way to learn about this great nation, develop leadership skills, gain a better understanding of electric cooperatives, and make friendships that will last beyond the week.
To apply just fill out the webform on this page (when the contest opens) and upload a copy of your essay.
